Pecan Chicken With Bourbon Sauce

Pecan Chicken With Bourbon Sauce created by ImPat

This is a restaurant recipe that I modified slightly. The bourbon sauce is wonderful, either pooled beneath the chicken and/or drizzled over the top. This recipe makes a lot of sauce. You can save some of the extra sauce for use later or drizzle the sauce over your veggies! Great pecan taste and crunch. Make sure you adjust your heat, while cooking the chicken, so the pecan coating does not burn. Don't skip the green onion to sprinkle over the finished product, it is part of the whole taste sensation! This recipe works for a weekly night dinner or even for company. Enjoy!

ingredients

directions

  • Mix together the pecans and bread crumbs, on a plate.
  • Beat the eggs and water in a pie plate.
  • Pound the chicken breasts to thin them. This helps so you won't have to cook the coated chicken breasts too long. You want to avoid burning the pecan coating.
  • Heat the 2 T. butter and 1 T. olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  • Dip the chicken breasts, both sides, into the eggs.
  • Press the chicken breasts, both sides, into the pecan and bread crumb mixture, coating them evenly.
  • Cook the chicken breasts over medium heat (adjust as needed) until nicely browned and cooked through. Depending on the thickness and size of your chicken breasts, it could be anywhere from 5 to 10 minute per side.
  • Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, whisk together the dijon mustard, dark brown sugar, bourbon, soy sauce and worcestershire sauce until smooth.
  • Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat, then remove from the burner and whisk in the 3/4 cups of unsalted butter, a few pieces at a time. Do not return to the heat.
  • Arrange the chicken breasts on a large serving platter and pour some of the sauce over. Sprinkle with green onions. Or you can plate them individually.
  • You may choose to pool the sauce or drizzle or serve the sauce on the side. The choice is yours!

    Great recipe! The pecans/panko bread crumbs provided just the right crunch and flavor - It didn’t even need any salt or pepper. The sauce is the bomb – and together with the chicken, it is so definitely restaurant quality and I can see why this is a popular recipe. You gave us a great one, LIG, and thanks a bunch! This will be made many-a-more-time! Made it for FYC.

    I must say that this recipe is awesome. I made it the first time for my 1st married anniversary. The sauce is just TOO good! So rich. I must admit I modified 2 things about it: I use less butter than the recipe asks for and since I don't have Bourbon, I use white rum (a good one). The sauce comes out great. And for the chicken, I just seal the flavor in a pan, but then after it's golden I transfer to the oven (200°C) until it's cooked. I still have to try cooking it all the way in the pan. In conclusion, this recipe is great and the sauce is such a game changer.
